University of South Carolina fans are invited to Colonial Life Arena on Saturday, August 19, for the annual Colonial Life Fan Appreciation Day.
Coaches and student-athletes from the Gamecocks’ football, men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball, equestrian, cross country and men’s and women’s swimming & diving teams will be on hand to sign autographs for this free event.
Doors will open to the public at 1:30 pm with the football team scheduled to arrive at 2 pm and sign until 3:30 pm. Only the main entrance to CLA will be available for the public to enter. Parking will be available in the lots adjacent to Colonial Life Arena.
Due to our commitment to NCAA compliance, student-athletes will only sign the official South Carolina Athletics team poster or autograph card that will be provided at the event free of charge. Please do not bring or ask student-athletes to sign other items. Your cooperation and support for the athletics department in complying with NCAA regulations is greatly appreciated. Bag checks will occur at the arena entrance and fans will not be allowed to bring in other memorabilia.
With a large crowd expected and a limited amount of time available, it is highly unlikely that fans will be able to receive an autograph of every student-athlete in attendance. To accommodate as many people as possible, we ask that fans limit their autograph signings to one poster and/or autograph card per person.
